Have had to decline 3-4 jobs this year

Posted by due to not having a social media device. SM on Thu, Sep 23 2021 at 08:37 PM CDT:

I can't believe I am having a hard time finding a remote job because I do not have a cell phone to sign into the employer's system or a webcam for Skype/Zoom interviews so the employer can look at this old senior citizen. What happened to the good ol' telephone and online tests and passwords?

If you're working at home, who cares what you look like as long as you are qualified and articulate and compassionate enough to communicate with clients over the phone. And when did cell phones become a requirement for accessing an employer's online software/platform? I would think the computer alone would be secure enough to log in. What's with the phones?

Just venting here. Irritable old and tired person not into social media devices. Just want to sign in online and work a job.

Grrrr. TIA
